our team 


We are landscape architects who collaborate with clients, communities, architects, engineers, scientists, and artists. Our client base ranges from local community groups to private corporations, and we maintain a balanced portfolio of public and private work that includes projects at every scale.


We are advocates for the artful transformation of the public realm. Our work includes parks and public open space, civic and healthcare facilities, campuses, urban commercial development, schools, multi-modal design, and intimate gardens. Our services typically include open-space planning, entitlements, community engagement, site design, concept development, presentation drawings, construction documents, horticultural consulting, and construction administration.


At the end of the day, we get our work built, even in the most competitive public bid environments, because we partner with the community, our clients, and design associates.  Our approach takes commitment, creativity, and more than often, a bit of humor.​


With the simple desire to do great work locally, Mark Brands and Robert Shrosbree, FASLA founded Site Workshop in 2000. After years of working with EDAW (now AECOM) on large-scale projects throughout the country and around the globe, the two decided it was time for a change. Jim Keller was added to the team, and they started out in a garage on Western Avenue, retaining their core clients, and building the foundation of one of the leading landscape architecture practices in the Pacific Northwest.


More than a decade later, Site Workshop thrives on a diverse range of projects at multiple scales, primarily within the Puget Sound region. Our brand is firmly rooted in our community.
